Diet for diabetes

diet for diabetes

Sugar diet is one of the methods of disease control in order to prevent the development of acute and chronic complications. The main task of therapeutic measures is the normalization of metabolic processes in the body by optimizing blood sugar levels to the maximum allowable value.

The key to patient well-being is adhering to a diet with a limited amount of carbohydrates and well-chosen drug therapy.

If you do not start treating the disease in time, diabetes mellitus complicates the kidneys, nervous system, blood vessels, eyes, heart.

Etiology and pathogenesis

Today, 4% of the world's population suffers from this disease. According to the WHO, 8640 people with diabetes die every day worldwide, 3 million people die every year. This figure is several times higher than the death rate from hepatitis and AIDS. According to data from the International Diabetes Federation, since 2014, the number of carriers of this disease is 285 million. At the same time, according to the forecast, by 2030. their number could increase to 438 million.

Etiology of the disease:

  • mbipesha;
  • hereditary predisposition;
  • viral infections (influenza, tonsillitis), as a result of which the islet apparatus is damaged and latent diabetes is formed;
  • mental / physical trauma;
  • vascular, autoimmune disorders.

External factors contributing to the development of diabetes:

  • prolonged mental stress, stress, fear, dread;
  • eating foods with an excessive amount of carbohydrates, substances saturated with sugar;
  • prolonged overeating.

Symptoms of diabetes in men and women:

  • weakness;
  • polyuria (an increase in the amount of urine up to 8 l / day);
  • weight loss;
  • hair loss;
  • drowsiness;
  • frequent urination;
  • strong thirst;
  • decreased lust, power;
  • itching of feet, palms, perineum;
  • increased appetite;
  • wounds do not heal well;
  • visual acuity decreases;
  • aroma of acetone from the mouth.

If you find signs of a disease, you should immediately consult a doctor, as the effectiveness of diabetes treatment depends directly on the degree to which the first symptoms of the disease are detected, the completion of the diagnosis and the performance of drug therapy. Remember, in the early stages, the disease is more easily treated.

Classification of Diseases and the Role of Nutrition

disease classification

The main role after drug therapy should be given to the patient's diet.

Types of diets depend on the stage of pancreatic depression, the mechanism of its occurrence and the way of treatment.

Degrees of disease

  1. Type 1 diabetes is a serious autoimmune disease associated with impaired glucose metabolism. In this case, the pancreas does not produce at all or produces very little insulin needed to maintain the body's vital functions.
  2. Type 2 diabetes. Often this form of the disease develops in sedentary older people, whose excess body weight exceeds 15% of total weight.
  3. Gestational diabetes. This type of diabetes mellitus develops in 4% of women during pregnancy, most often in the second trimester. Unlike the first two types of the disease, in most cases it disappears immediately after the birth of the child, however, it can sometimes turn into the second type of diabetes. . . .

The least common forms (variants) of diabetes mellitus that occur in 1% of the world's population are prediabetes, latent, neurogenic, renal, steroids, bronze, MODY.

Types of Diabetes Diet

Insulin injections, hypoglycemic drugs and physical activity are important for achieving positive dynamics in the treatment of the disease. However, according to some doctors (A. Bronstein, E. Malysheva, V. Kononov), proper diet plays a fundamental role.

Types of food programs

types of diet for diabetes
  1. A carb-free diet is a technique based on consuming complex carbohydrates from vegetables, fruits - in large quantities, and excluding foods that contain simple carbohydrates from the menu.
  2. Protein diet for diabetes. This nutritional scheme is based on the principle of minimizing the consumption of carbohydrates and fats by increasing protein in the diet. The main emphasis in the methodology is the replacement of meat with lean fish, poultry and fermented milk products.
  3. Low carb diet, used to design menus for type 1 diabetics. 2.
  4. Buckwheat diet. Regular consumption of this product has a beneficial effect on the body: lowers the level of "bad" cholesterol and saturates it with iron, rutin, calcium, magnesium, fiber, iodine, vitamin B. The buckwheat diet for diabetes helps minimizeof the likelihood of macrovascular complications and ulcers.
  5. The diabetes prevention diet is designed to reduce the risk of developing pancreatic dysfunction.

With the onset of deterioration of the cardiovascular system and blood vessels, diet 10 is practiced for diabetes mellitus. Its feature is to reduce the consumption of fluids, salt, fats, carbohydrates, as these substances overload the liver, kidneys and irritate the nervous system.

Let us examine in detail what kind of diet is needed for diabetes mellitus, recipes for dishes that are allowed to be consumed during the period of diet food.

Carbohydrate counting

counting carbohydrates for diabetes

When you detect diabetes, it is important to properly balance your intake of carbohydrates and glucose-lowering substances in the body. To calculate the caloric content of products, a universal parameter called the bread unit is used. At the same time, 1 XE (10 - 13 g of pure carbohydrates) raises glucose to 2. 77 mmol / l and "requires" 1. 4 units of insulin to absorb it. Since the injection is given before the start of the meal, it is important to plan a single ration in advance.

Carbohydrate saturation of a meal should be 4-6 bread units. The frequency and timing of meals depends directly on the type of sugar-lowering drug.

Quantity of product compliant with 1XE:

  • sugar - 1 tbspl.
  • honey - 1 tbsp. l.
  • spaghetti - 1. 5 tbspl.
  • fruit juices - 150 ml;
  • ice cream
  • - 60 g;
  • sparkling fresh water - 180 ml;
  • bread (rye, white, black) - 25 g;
  • pancakes or pancakes - 1 piece;
  • dough
  • - 25 g;
  • melon - 300 g;
  • porridge (oats, buckwheat, wheat) - 2 tbsp. ldrithërat;
  • sausage - 200 g;
  • kefir, fermented baked milk, milk - 250 ml;
  • mashed potatoes - 100 g;
  • apples - 100 g;
  • legumes (peas, beans) - 5 tbsp. l.
  • kiwi - 150 g;
  • pear - 90 g;
  • orange - 100 g;
  • berries - 150 g;
  • plum - 100 g;
  • peaches - 150 g;
  • watermelon - 400 g;
  • dried fruits (prunes, raisins, dried apricots) - 20 g.

Carbohydrate saturation of a diabetic's daily diet should not exceed 17 bread units (2000 kcal).

In addition to counting saccharides, it is important that patients with pancreatic dysfunction carefully choose food for a meal based on prohibited and permitted ingredients.

After converting carbohydrates into bread units, it is important to determine the amount of insulin that will be required to use blood sugar after eating. Following this recommendation will help to avoid life-threatening conditions - hyper and hypoglycemia.

Diet for grade 1 diabetes

diet for type 1 diabetes

The type 1 diabetes diet is based on strict control of blood glucose concentration at the level (3. 5… 5. 5 mmol / l).

Consider food intake features, allowing you to keep its level within defined limits.

  1. The maximum daily calorie content of dishes (total per day) is 2000 kcal.
  2. Fractional food (at least 5 times).
  3. Eliminate pure sucrose from the menu to lower blood glucose.
  4. Distribute the main dose of carbohydrates for breakfast and lunch.
  5. Do not eat at night.
  6. Avoid taking easily digestible carbohydrates: baked goods, honey, jam, canned food.
  7. Use a natural sweetener as a sweetener.
  8. To monitor the quality, "naturalness" of products.
  9. Adjust your insulin therapy schedule for meals (one long-acting medicine is administered before meals, one short-acting - after meals).
  10. Calculate the number of bread units to calculate the amount of carbohydrates eaten per day. For one meal, you should not eat more than 8 XE.

In the presence of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract (pancreatitis, ulcers, gastritis), the diet for diabetes mellitus stops taking products such as: pickles, smoked meats, rich soups, coffee, carbonated beverages, alcohol, mushrooms, canned foods that stimulate the excess secretion of enzymes, because they affect the speed and level of absorption of carbohydrates.

Diet for insulin-dependent diabetes in children

diet for diabetes in children

Diabetes mellitus in childhood and adolescence is much more difficult to perform than in adults. The genetic predisposition of the child, stress and poor nutrition are the main causes of the development of autoimmune disease.

In 80% of cases, children are diagnosed with insulin-dependent diabetes (type 1). Early diagnosis, immediate treatment and strict adherence to a special diet will help prevent the consequences of the disease.

  5. Food should be taken after 15 minutes. after insulin administration and 2 hours after injection.
  6. If you can not eat at the right time, you can eat bread, pear, nuts, cheese or apple sandwich as a snack. Under no circumstances should you starve to death.
  7. Getting a bar of chocolate immediately will help stop hypoglycemic attacks. Therefore, an adult accompanying a child should always have a sweet product available.
  8. Enrich your baby's daily diet with fermented milk products.
  9. Calculate your daily fructose intake. The amount of sugar substitute depends directly on the age of the child and the nature of the course of the disease.

To lower blood glucose, it is advisable for a child to give a decoction of cranberries, nettles, corn stalks, mint leaves, barberry branches, bean pods, Jerusalem artichoke fruit, ginseng and eleutherococcus.

Thus, the diet for patients with diabetes plays an important role, as the well-being and life of the patient depends on the correctness of its composition. Therefore, it is important to take very seriously and carefully the design of the diet and its observance, otherwise negligence can lead to tragic consequences.
